A stay in one of our Bigbury-on-Sea cottages promises a gorgeous seaside holiday to remember. At the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bigbury-on-Sea is a popular destination for families looking for a classic beach holiday in south Devon. A favourite spot of Agatha Christie's, the village has wonderful picturesque views out to the ocean and sits right next to the beach. Clear views out to sea and towards Burgh Island from the beach make Bigbury-on-Sea a rather special holiday location.
The golden sands stretch across to Burgh Island, where Noel Coward and Agatha Christie attended elegant parties in the 1920s. The shallow waters around the island are perfect for paddlers and there are lots of rockpools to explore with the kids. Our cottages in Bigbury-on-Sea are ideal for a family holiday, only a stone's throw from the beach.
For those looking for an adrenaline rush, Bigbury-On-Sea is great for watersports. Bodyboarding and surfing are incredibly popular but you can also try windsurfing and kite surfing too. There are facilities where you can hire equipment on the beach
Although a fairly quiet spot in Devon, the village isn’t far from the bright lights of the big city. Plymouth is only 20 miles west. You can pack up and head out on a day trip to the National Marine Aquarium or visit the iconic Plymouth Hoe. There’s also plenty of shops and restaurants to keep all the family busy.
To the east of Bigbury-on-Sea, you’ll find another popular holiday destination, Salcombe. Around 13 miles away, this picturesque town is a sailor’s paradise. For anyone who loves being out on the water, a visit to Salcombe will make a lovely day out whether you spend it sailing, kayaking, in a dinghy or canoeing.
With 200 ferries daily, our hassle free booking service makes your trip to the island plain sailing
